Breaking: DROID X Android 2.2 Update Starting Tomorrow at 12PM EST

Just as we said yesterday, the Droid X 2.2 update will be released tomorrow to the masses.  The update will become available at 12:00PM EST giving any user with a DX the opportunity to “pull” the update manually.  Yep, just as we talked about at the beginning of the month, Blur does have one major benefit and that’s the ability to pull updates rather than forcing users to wait for them to be “pushed” to their devices.

To have your phone check for the update visit the following screen:

Settings>About>System Updates

At noon tomorrow, or 9:00AM here on the west coast, the update should be waiting for you.  Oh, you can stop checking for updates now.  Might as well wait until tomorrow.  🙂

One more shot after the break.  

And finally?

  • Steve Hall

  • Jay_holi


    Check your signal strength. I'm at 90% on my download and it's only been about 15 minutes.

    • birdonamission

      Wow…90% for you. I have 5 bars, but still going painfully slow — after all this time, just at 2%.

  • Steve Hall

  • Chrishd4ever


  • birdonamission

    So… How fast is your downloading going? It's still at 1% after almost 20 minutes. Over 3G. Is Wi-Fi faster?

    • Jjlinke18

      I have been downloading on 3g for about 20min too but im at 16%

      • birdonamission

  • Mauricegregory

    What about the volume..

  • Marcio

    I have installed the leaked froyo 2.2 but have some issues. So I would like to do the update but do I need to revert back to 2.1 first? if so how do I do that?

  • Roger

    Does anybody know what the behavior will be if you're on stock 2.1 and rooted and try to upgrade? I'm speaking of those who've rooted with the 1-click method (and who haven't modified/deleted/frozen/removed out any of the stock apps) Will 2.2 tomorrow:
    1) not allow to upgrade
    2) Allow you to upgrade, but lose root
    3) Allow you to upgrade, and keep root

  • carl

    I'm so stoked for this I can't wait (: take an already amazing fast phone and make out faster and make full web content available on the gorgeous 4.3 inch screen..this update will virtually eliminate the need for my lap top..the leaked froyo fixed my speaker issues so I'm sure the official will to..yay yay im excited..droid x best phone ever made!!(:

  • Evermour

    We'll see.

  • Hambrtd

    About time…. guess next time I purchase an android phone it will be from HTC. I've now had the original droid and now the droid x and from my own experience and what i hear from users and read htc is a better experience and they seem to be on top of things when it comes to google official updates and overal satisfaction…. just my opinion…

  • PassTravelFool

    It keeps saying 12:00 EST but we're still in EDT! Is this a simply mistake or is this a hoax email?

  • Larry

    Anyone know if i'll lose root with this?

  • Jtnix430

    Anyone heard anything about the volume fix for the dx?

    • Dragoneer

      Lemme Google that for you: http://tinyurl.com/33ojr3f

      • Aubreyvt

  • Tracy Wilborn


  • Poopetr

    I've had Froyo on my discontinued Droid Eris since forever now. What took droidx so long?

  • Turner

    This is why I love DL. And my dads new X just got here. He's going to love Froyo! (I already do!)

  • Hlema

    Our they going to do something about the weak sound output? Can hardly hear the phone ring. Sucks.

  • aha this is hilarious to me in the last two droid x post i had just said verizon had the update if u go to the store they will push the update to you cuz i had it for two days already and no one believed me now look yall getting it tommorow when u couldve had it when i told you guys sucks when u dont believe someone lol

    • Dragoneer

      I call BS on this. You're a liar unless you prove it by posting a screenshot of your system info showing that you have the official build.

      • Aubreyvt

        Tried to get “Javonte” to prove it yesterday. Wouldn't. So im with ya….. BS.
